Rhiannon is the name of my second child born in October 2011. While at home on maternity leave, I discovered the Baking with Julia group and decided to join. While I may be short on time, I love to bake and love having an excuse to bake. Although Rhiannon cannot eat all of these treats, she is a (somewhat) patient observer of my endeavors.

Okay, so they look more like onion rolls, than bialys. No matter, they still tasted absolutely delicious. Similar to a bagel in texture but a bit more chewy and dense. Basically, the dough was my perfect idea of comfort white-bread-food. If there was more nutrition in these, I would eat them everyday. I made these early in the day on Super Bowl Sunday and they made solid bases for our layered sandwiches.
They came together quite easily. The dough was sticky as it was kneaded in my mixer but firmed up with a chill in the fridge (its second rise). Shaping them was fun but obviously I did not prick the centers enough with a fork. I also halved the recipe which made everything a bit easier to deal with. Although right now, I wish I had 6 more stored up in my freezer…
